Our Main Presentation
Dr. Andrea Isella of Rice University will present a talk "C.L.E.V.E.R Planets Project, an Update".
You can learn more about him and his research here:
The talk include what it takes to make a life-bearing planet:
1) Form the planet
2) Bombard the planet with a source of water
3) Geology releases life-giving elements
4) Life-giving elements are redistributed
5) Life-giving elements recombine and life arises
Each of these has a research group. Dr. Isella's group studies step #1: Where, when, and how do rocky planets form? What is their abundance of ingredients necessary for life?
